When fraps isnt recording, my fps is fine, but when it starts recording, it drops to 20 or less. It probably is my laptop though:
Processor: AMD A8-5545M APU with Radeon HD 8150G graphics 1.70 GHz
RAM: 4GB installed, 3.19 GB usable
System: x64-based processor

FRAPS is very resource intensive. I'm not surprised you are having slow downs such as you are.

Marcro,the reason you have a low fps with fraps is because when recording the main issue is your harddrive not your cpu not your graphic card,although those things are required to set a base fps.Then that base fps is recorded on the harddrive.Now in default the recorder records at like 400 mb/sec or so which the harddrive CAN NOT write at causing the low fps.To solve this problem you need a decompressed codec to record games on your current harddrive. Dx tory offers 6 different codecs including raw and decompressed one which will not hit your fps at all.
